Check what they would and wouldn’t be able to cope with in terms of behavioural issues. Check if their were other members of the family and if they were all happy to have a dog. Check what other animals were in the house, if they’d accept a new dog and their condition.
What do adoption agencies check?

Your medical assessment will be carried out by your GP, who’ll usually charge for this.
What is a concern of parents considering adoption?
Concerns During the Adoption Process The overall cost of adoption can be substantial. The home study process is lengthy, can feel intrusive, and might bring to light issues you may not have fully resolved. You’re likely to experience long periods of waiting, often with uncertain outcomes.
What are the rules for adopting a child?
For domestic and international adoptions, the age of the prospective parents must be legal age, which is 21 years or older. In the US there is usually no age cutoff, meaning you can adopt a child as long as you are 21 or over.

Do animal shelters check your house?
Most rescues do a home check. They do this to make sure the dog isnt going to a home where it will not be taken care of. I’ve always welcomed home checks as it makes the foster feel more comfortable about where the dog is going. They also want to make sure the new dog gets along with all family members.
What do home visits for dogs look for?
They look for things like holes in fences, or fences that are too low, or other issues that may make them easy for the new animal to escape. Windows without latches or screens that may allow escape. Exposed wires or debris and trash in the animal’s possible new environment that may pose a safety hazard.
Can I adopt if I’m overweight?
Being slightly overweight won’t stop you from adopting a child, it becomes a problem if you are dangerously overweight and your doctor thinks this poses a threat to your health.
Can you adopt if you are bipolar?
Of course, it is possible. While more than 95 percent of children adopted from American Adoptions are completely healthy, is a medical issue such as bipolar disorder, which is easily treatable, going to make the adoptive family love that child any less?
Can you adopt if you are autistic?
The answer is absolutely yes, under the right circumstances. While a person with moderate or severe autism is unlikely to have the skills to parent a child, many people with high-functioning autism are ready, willing, and able to take on the challenges of raising kids.
Do you get a monthly check when you adopt a child?
As a foster parent, you will receive a check each month to cover the cost of caring for the child, and the child will also receive medical assistance. If you adopt that child, you will continue to receive financial and medical assistance. Remember that for a U.S. waiting child you should not be asked to pay high fees.
Is it better to adopt a baby or an older child?
Children who are older may have unique health and mental needs, meaning that there will not be as many surprises once you adopt. Adopting a child means you as the prospective parents know what you are about to sign on for. With an infant, the possibility exists for special needs to take years to manifest.
